Someone wise once said: “The better I get to know men, the more I find myself loving dogs”. There is a bitter truth in this statement. Dogs love their owners more than themselves and they deserve admiration for their true loyalty.
This lonely dog at the hospital’s entrance never tried to go into the hospital, and it never violated any rules. Always calm and polite, this dog is still waiting for its owner.
This story is about loyalty, but unfortunately, the pet’s owner passed away in the hospital. He was a homeless man from San Paolo, Brazil, stabbed in a street fight. When the ambulance took him, his loyal friend chased the vehicle right to the hospital entrance, but he was not allowed to enter so he settled at the door hoping for his owner to come back. Sadly, the man did not survive and his pet was waiting in vain.
The staff of the Santa Casa de Novo Horizonte hospital grew fond of the dog, they often gave him food and warm blankets. Their hearts ached for the poor dog, so they found a new home for him. But the pet escaped and came back to his permanent post near the hospital, waiting for his owner to return.
